Southern Illinois Fishing Reports

Southern Illinois Fishing Report - April 4th, 2014

Crab Orchard Lake: Most crappies are still holding over deeper cover on minnows and jigs. Some anglers were also taking some bluegills near the rip rap on a variety of baits. Catfish action is still slow. Largemouth bass fishing has been good on plastic worms and spinnerbaits. Drop lures deep and crank slow, as bass begin to become more active as water warms. Look for structure or signs of vegetation. Bass will be feeding heavily in coming weeks. Bluegills good on worms and even on some jigs and small blades. Fish a little small, but bigger bluegills expected to start biting soon.

Carlyle Lake: Crappies are rated fair and are being caught on top of structure and in the brush piles. Most fish are holding in 3-5 feet of water. Minnows and jigs are the primary bait. White bass are rated good and should continue to bite through spring on tube jigs, minnows and curlytails. Catfish action is improving on shad, shad gut and nightcrawlers. Saugers are also rated good on curlytails tipped with minnows or nightcrawlers. Bluegills fair.

Kinkaid Lake: Muskies have picked up and expected to be plentiful this spring. Bluegills are being caught in 3-5 feet of water on wigglers and wax worms. Crappies are holding in 5-10 feet of water and have been good on minnows and jigs. Bass fair on plastics and spinners. A little early for topwaters, but worth a try during early evening. Catfish being caught on stinkbaits and worms.

Rend Lake: Crappies fair on jigs and minnows in water ranging from 5-10 feet along Route 154. Fish are holding in brush piles. Bass and bluegills are rated slow. A few bass are being caught on spinners, crankbaits, soft plastics and Rat-L-Traps along the rip rap or in weedbeds. Catfish remains steady and good on cut shad, shad gut, nightcrawlers, minnows and stinkbaits.

Lake of Egypt: Bass looking good in shallows and in coves. Crappie action has been good in 15-18 feet. Fish are holding over brush piles and near docks.  Catfish good on a variety of baits. Some good-sized channel cats being pulled in on liver. Bluegills good on worms and small blades.
